Joseph's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped a furloughed trainer continue his career by re-imagining personal training in light of COVID.

Joseph's story

I was bullied relentlessly and unanimously growing up. My process of healing and recovery as an adult can be summarized by the creed of my coaching: own your challenge. If you don’t own your challenge, someone else will, and that rarely works out well. Now I have an enviable career of coaching people how to own the physical challenges they are presented with or present to themselves. Training the 1000+ clients in the 10+ years I have been a personal trainer, I have encountered clients with the gamut of challenges. But the current COVID pandemic has been a challenge to clients, trainers and indeed the whole industry. I have yet to return to work and many of my clients do not want to return to the gym. Yet health and fitness are more important than ever. Through destruction comes creation and I wan to own this challenge by creating an effective virtual training experience.
